Hi all,

according to their own ChangeLog [1] as well as other ressources [2],
the current VirtualBox 4.0.8 release has "fixed GNOME 3 rendering under
Ubuntu 11.04 and Fedora 15". I have tried it out and indeed it still
does not work with the GNOME 3 packages provided in Debian experimental.

Do you know in how far the Fedora or Ubuntu packages differ from the
Debian ones or whatever causes this discrepancy?
